HUAWEI P20 Pro firmly occupied the first place in the DxOMark list in 2018, but with the release of the P30 series, the ranking of the P20 series and other mobile phones can only retreat slightly. Of course, evaluating a flagship machine can't just look at the camera function. The overall development is what we want to see. Next, let's take a look at the comprehensive strength of the new HUAWEI P30 series.
Appearance: Innovative Gradient Design
HUAWEI P30 series does not use a comprehensive screen with digging holes or lifting structures, but uses a relatively conventional full screen of water drop screen. The HUAWEI P30 uses a 6.1-inch OLED water-drop screen, while the P30 Pro uses a 6.47-inch OLED dual hyperbolic water-drop screen. Both resolutions are 2340*1080, and both support the DCI-P3 wide color gamut.
The HUAWEI P30 series body uses a diamond cutting process, which is slim and has a good grip. Moreover, the screen frame has been well controlled, in addition to the very narrow level on both sides, the chin part also achieves the first-class level of the Android camp. The front side of the P30 Pro has a water droplet width of only 6.64 mm, a forehead black side width of 3.36 mm, a machine width of 73.4 mm, and a weight of 192 g; the P30 has a width of 71.4 mm and weighs 165 g.
The overall appearance of the front of the phone body seems to conform to the rules and standards, but the four R angles are more rounded than the previous generation P20 series. The metal frame + double glass design has been used very well by Huawei, especially the hyperboloid glass design of the P30 Pro brings the exquisiteness and hand feel of the whole machine to a higher level.
Due to the use of the water drop screen design, the lack of 3D structured light modules is also reasonable, but still retains the infrared face recognition function. For the first time, the HUAWEI P series adopts the mature screen fingerprint technology. With the double comparison algorithm, the unlocking speed is increased by 30%.
In addition, HUAWEI P30 Pro uses a hidden earpiece design and uses a magnetic suspension sound screen technology to achieve a higher screen ratio. The principle is that the magnetic suspension vibrator drives the screen to sound, which makes the listening area wider, and supports IP68 dustproof and water resistant. The P30 supports IP53 dust and water resistance.
Interestingly, the P30 series body has a flat design on the top and bottom, which means that the P30 series can be erected without relying on external tools. In addition, the P30 series supports Dolby panoramic sound effects.
On the back, compared to the unified “exclamation mark” design of the P20 series, the arrangement of P30 series is different: The P30 triple camera are still arranged vertically, but the lower two-color temperature flash is made into strips; the P30 Pro is a vertical arrangement of triple camera, but the flash, laser focus module and the TOF lens forms a small "exclamation mark".
In terms of color matching, HUAWEI once again demonstrated their strong color matching ability, introducing a new optical texture that will reflect different luster as the changes of lights. HUAWEI P30 series has 5 colors, which are Amber Sunrise, Breathing Crystal, Aurora, Pearl White and Bright Black, satisfying all needs of consumers.

50X digital zoom
50X digital zoom
HUAWEI P30 Pro with "periscope telephoto lens", which makes the lens horizontally placed in the slim body through the optical path of the prism, achieving 5x optical zoom, 10x hybrid zoom and 50x digital zoom; HUAWEI P30 can achieve 3x optical zoom, 5x hybrid zoom and 10x digital zoom.
HUAWEI P30 series are equipped with 1/1.7-inch super-sensing sensor, RYYB new color filter array design, the amount of light increased by 40%.
The HUAWEI P30 series has an impressive dark light performance, and the P30 Pro supports up to ISO 409600, which makes night shots even better.
HUAWEI P30 series supports AI HDR+, which can optimize backlighting, so that highlights do not overflow, and can show details in the dark.
HUAWEI P30 Pro's ToF camera supports real-time accurate depth ranging, which allows the progressive background to blur and present a natural blurry DOF effect.
The HUAWEI P30 series is equipped with a 32-megapixel front-facing camera. With the AI smart beauty algorithm, the self-timer is more attractive. In addition, AI HDR+ uses a precise portrait segmentation algorithm to optimize the sub-regional lighting of the face, combined with multi-frame synthesis and AI intelligent processing to make the face light more realistic and natural.
Super wide angle
The HUAWEI P30 Pro is equipped with an equivalent focal length of 16mm Leica super wide-angle camera, which has a unique wide field of view and can capture spectacular scenery.
HUAWEI P30 Pro supports 2.5cm super macro photography, which can capture tiny details and perfectly shows the beauty of delicate.
HUAWEI P30 series has made great efforts in video recording. Thanks to the powerful light input of the ultra-sensing sensor, the P30 Pro has a powerful night shooting capability, plus dual OIS optical image stabilization and AIS smart anti-shake, which can better capture the night light and shadow flow, get clear and stable images, and even it is easy to record videos while running.
In addition, HUAWEI P30 series also with innovative dual-view video, panoramic and close-up can be record at the same time.
The excellent image system of HUAWEI P30 series once again refreshed the DxOMark list. Huawei P30 Pro's DxOMark score reached 112 points, the photo is 119 points, and the video is 97 points. It is worth mentioning that the top three of the list are HUAWEI mobile phones.
Performance: Kirin 980, seven world's first
HUAWEI P30 series is equipped with Kirin 980 processor.
